I'm really confused about the default video-player solution which is used for example by the IE or the Facebook app. It's not possible to tap the timeline to skip to a certain point in the playback. So far so ... bad.
But I searched a lot and did not find any specific guide/idea/hack/... to replace the default video-player with anything more sophisticated.
Of cause, I came across MoliPlayer. This player allows, if used to play videos from INSIDE this specific app, to skip by timeline-tapping.
What I'm looking for is a system-wide replacement for the video-player, so if I stream a video in IE, the replacement opens up and lets me navigate a video like it was possible back in the Stone Age (times of SymbianOS).
Does anyone know if or if not a solution for this problem exists?
In addition, does any of the software-development guys knows, if this is at all possible to be developed for WP8? I quickly searched through MSDN and did not find any usefull information about this. Is there a chance (like for the message app or the camera app) to replace the video-player by your own application in the way I described above?
